pretty easy to just take them out, grab one whole side of a seat and push the opposite direction.

I've got new seat covers ordered for my '88 and when I install them I thought I would re-paint the backs of the seats just as you're looking to do.

I'm curious, what type of paint were you planning on using on the backs? Also, when you finish the re-painting let me know how it turned out for you. Thanks.

I am putting new carpet in now, so I figured I would paint all of the faded interior plastic. I have been using Rustoleum vinyl paint from Autozone. Not sure if it will hold up, but it looks good after you shoot it.

I plan on using the mid-america prep and interior paint. On the fence on either painting them factory color (med) gray or just black.
